Subject RE: What is the first entry point to the Ivy lifecycle?
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2008 18:46:11 GMT
You need to do a resolve before you do the publish.

I really struggled understanding this and getting it to work.   Below is my publish target.
  I may be doing some unnecessary stuff....but this works for me.

   <target name="ivy-publish" depends="init, ivy-setup" description="--> setup ivy configuration"

        <!-- get a resolved ivy file in distrib/ivys -->
        <ivy-deliver pubrevision="${VERSION}" />

        <!-- resolve the file again, get everything in the cache -->
        <ivy-resolve file="distrib/ivys/ivy-${VERSION}.xml"/>

        <ivy-publish resolver="internal" revision="${VERSION}" pubrevision="${VERSION}"
            validate="true" publishivy="true" haltonmissing="false"

Subject: What is the first entry point to the Ivy lifecycle?

Hi all,

I am trying to publish a jar to my repository for the very first time.
I am getting errors indicating that the module is not in my cache (which
it is not, because it is a brand new jar that never existed before

When I look at the Ivy lifecycle diagram, it seems cyclic with no entry
points other than the public repository:

I can see how artifacts transition between states, but not how it enters
the cache for the first time.

I suspect maybe it is <ivy:resolve>, but the document does not say this.
It only says that resolve retrieves dependencies.

What I tried is a <ivy:publish> task which is failing with this error.

java.lang.IllegalStateException: ivy file not found in cache for
ccrt#hello-A;1.0: please resolve dependencies before delivering

>From this message, it seems that <publish> is trying to read some
information from the cache.  As I mentioned before, I don't see how the
artifact is populated into the cache for the first time.

Help appreciated, this is very frustrating.
